Programs and initiatives

To make the talks accessible beyond our English-speaking audience, TED’s Open Translation Project coordinates a network of over 16,000 volunteer translators. Thanks to OTP, subtitles and interactive transcripts are available for almost every talk, with many in over 100 languages.

And of course, TED.com is the place to look for information about our new and ongoing initiatives. We hope you’ll find TED.com an invaluable resource for questions like, “Are there any upcoming local TEDx events in my area?”, “How do I apply to be a TED Fellow?”, "Who was this year's TED Prize winner?" and more.
